Top Frederick Gaudreau News

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Garners helper

    Gaudreau logged an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 7-3 win over the Ducks.

    Gaudreau set up Matthew Boldy's tally just 30 seconds into the third period, which also stood as the game-winner. The assist snapped a six-game point drought for Gaudreau, who missed six games in the COVID-19 protocols prior to the slump. The 28-year-old is at a career-high 11 points with 36 shots, 17 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 28 appearances.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Playing Sunday

    Gaudreau, who was activated from the COVID-19 list Saturday, will be in Sunday's lineup against Vegas.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Will join team in Vegas

    Gaudreau (COVID-19 protocols) has been activated from non-roster injured reserve and will join the Wild for Sunday's game against the Golden Knights, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Gaudreau has missed 12 days in the protocols, but it sounds like he'll be an option for Sunday. He won't play Saturday against the Kings, and the Wild will need to make a roster move to account for his return.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Remains in virus protocols

    Gaudreau is still in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and won't play Thursday versus New Jersey, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

    Gaudreau will need to submit two negative COVID-19 rests before rejoining the Wild. Another update on the 28-year-old forward's status will undoubtedly surface once he clears the NHL's virus protocols.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Out Tuesday

    Gaudreau (COVID-19 protocols) will not suit up Tuesday against Arizona.

    Gaudreau has scored a point in five of his last six games, giving him 10 points through 21 contests this season. Tuesday will be his first missed game of the season. He'll have a chance to clear protocols in time for Thursday's tilt with the Devils.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Extends point streak

    Gaudreau picked up an assist against the Lightning on Sunday, giving him three assists in as many games.

    Gaudreau has been rolling of late with one goal and four helpers in his previous six tilts. With 10 points in 21 games, the 28-year-old natural center has already matched his career-high 10 points set last season with the Penguins. At this rate, the Quebec native could challenge for the 40-point threshold.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Manages helper in loss

    Gaudreau produced an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Gaudreau helped out on a Jared Spurgeon tally in the third period. The 28-year-old Gaudreau has seen top-six usage lately, but he's been inconsistent on offense. The center has five points, 22 shots on net, 11 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 13 appearances. Without standout production in any aspect of the game, the Quebec native probably is best left on fantasy waiver wires.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Tacks on assist

    Gaudreau recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Jets.

    Most notably, Gaudreau saw a season-high 16:28 of ice time, ranking fifth among Wild forwards. The 28-year-old is clearly set to play a noticeable role in the middle six this year. He's picked up two points, seven shots on net and a pair of hits through three contests.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Scores equalizer in win

    Gaudreau scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

    Gaudreau needed just two games to get his first goal and point with his new team. The 28-year-old's second-period tally tied the game at 1-1. After signing with the Wild in July, Gaudreau is expected to serve in a bottom-six role regularly this year. He put up 10 points in 19 contests with the Penguins last season, but the Wild's comparative lack of offensive talent should see the Quebec native earn a bump in ice time from the 13:04 per game he averaged in 2020-21.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Snags two-year contract

    Gaudreau secured a two-year, $2.4 million contract from the Wild on Wednesday.

    Gaudreau appeared to rediscover his offensive form with the Penguins, as he recorded 10 points in 19 regular-season contests before adding another three playoff points. Perhaps more importantly for the 28-year-old natural center is the fact that his new contract is one-way in nature, which will significantly improve his chances of avoiding time in the minors this year.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Picks up goal in OT loss

    Gaudreau scored a goal on four shots and had one hit Sunday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders in Game 1.

    Gaudreau retrieved his own rebound in the slot and got the second chance to go from inside the right circle, tying the game at 1-1 midway through the opening period. The 28-year-old Gaudreau has now found the scoresheet in four straight games (one goal, five assists), including the end of the regular season, and he's settled in nicely as Pittsburgh's third-line center. He had 10 points with a plus-10 rating in 19 regular-season tilts in his first year as a Penguin.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Career-best effort in win

    Gaudreau provided three assists and went plus-4 in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Sabres.

    Jeff Carter posted a four-goal performance Thursday, and Gaudreau assisted on two of those tallies, as well as one by Jared McCann. That trio of forwards combined for five goals and 10 points in the win. Gaudreau had never produced a three-point outing prior to Thursday. He now has nine points, 20 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 18 contests.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Gathers helper in win

    Gaudreau notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Flyers.

    Gaudreau had a secondary helper on Marcus Pettersson's opening tally in the first period. The 28-year-old Gaudreau has mainly worked in a bottom-six role when he's in the lineup. He's managed a career-high six points with 20 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 17 contests.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Scores in first game back

    Gaudreau (lower body) scored a goal on his only shot in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals.

    After missing the previous eight games with his injury, Gaudreau immediately chipped in offensively when he converted a cross-ice pass from Jason Zucker midway through the second period to give Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead. It was Gaudreau's second goal in 14 games this season.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Labeled game-time call

    Gaudreau (lower body) was a full participant at Thursday's game-day skate and is considered a game-time call against Washington. When asked about Pittsburgh's injured forwards, coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Tonight's lineup will be a game-time decision. They're all making progress on the ice. Obviously that's encouraging," per Pens Inside Scoop.

    Even if healthy, Gaudreau's status Thursday could be dependant on whether Evgeni Malkin (lower body) is given the green light, which would push Gaudreau further down the center depth chart, though he could be moved to the wing. In 13 games for the Pens this year, the 27-year-old Quebec native garnered one goal on 17 shots and three assists while averaging 13:40 of ice time and should probably be considered a mid-range fantasy option at best.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Returns to lineup Thursday

    Gaudreau (lower body) is officially in the lineup for Thursday's game against Washington.

    Gaudreau will return to the lineup after an eight-game absence with the lower-body issue. The 27-year-old has been decent when called upon this season, producing four points across 13 games. Gaudreau will re-enter the lineup centering the fourth line for Thursday's game.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Joining road trip

    Gaudreau (lower body) has been cleared for contact and will join Pittsburgh's four-game road trip, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Gaudreau skated in a fourth-line role Wednesday and could be in the lineup against Washington on Thursday, though the eventual return of Evgeni Malkin (lower body) would likely force Gaudreau out of the lineup or perhaps moving to the wing.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Sporting non-contact sweater

    Gaudreau (lower body) joined Friday's practice in a non-contact jersey, per Pens Inside Scoop.

    Gaudreau was previously labeled week-to-week and appears to be trending in the right direction. Even once cleared to play, Gaudreau could struggle to break into the lineup following the addition of Jeff Carter at the trade deadline. If Gaudreau does play, it likely will be in a bottom-six role.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Labeled week-to-week

    Gaudreau (lower body) is considered week-to-week according to coach Mike Sullivan.

    While it's certainly a blow for the Penguins, who find themselves dealing with yet another injured forward, Gaudreau was likely going to get bounced from the third-line center role anyway after the team acquired veteran Jeff Carter at the deadline. Elevated to the active roster due to injuries, the 27-year-old Quebec native garnered four points in 13 appearances for the Pens while averaging 13:40 of ice time. Depending on how long Gaudreau is out, this could spell the end of his run of NHL games this year, especially once Evgeni Malkin (lower body) and Kasperei Kapanen (lower body) are cleared to return.

  • Penguins' Frederick Gaudreau: Suffers injury Sunday

    Gaudreau left Sunday's game against New Jersey with a lower-body injury.

    Gaudreau was on the ice for 10:36 before exiting Sunday's contest. Head coach Mike Sullivan said that he'd be evaluated once the team gets back to Pittsburgh. The 27-year-old will be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game against the Flyers.
